Good food

This is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is really good, especially the fish (mojarra). One thing is true thou that sometimes the service is kind of slow have seen clients leaving before they order, but is not always, just be patient, and you will see it is worth it.

Yuca con Chicharron (with Curtido) (Pork bits and fries with cabbage relish) (~$10) Camarones a la Diabla (Shrimp in Hot Sauce) (~$12) Burrito (Chorizo with Egg) (~$10) Nachos y Guacamole (~$6) They stick with the traditional names here so I provided some rough translations where necessary. We started with the Nachos y Guacamole. This was a small glob of guacamole... More

We happened to be walking down the Drive on a Friday evening when we spied this small and unassuming restaurant. As lovers of Central and South American food, we ventured inside for dinner. The restaurant was busy with a high percentage of Latino customers – yes, always a good sign. We ordered a selection of dishes to share as we... More

Rinconcito is great value for traditional El Salvadorian food. This little restaurant crammed with tables and mementos from "back home" is a favorite with our family. You can always find something for anyone's tastes. On sunny evenings, like most places on the drive, you may have to wait for table and food. The service is honest - just don't expect... More

We try to go here every time we are in Vancouver. Located on Commercial Drive, this place is always busy. Excellent Papusas and Huaraches, good selection of Mexican beer. Tasty and delicious and affordable Salvadoran cooking. They do not take credit cards, so bring Cash or debit card.

Visited this restaurant with my wife, son and his girlfriend. Dropped by on a whim.. just looking for good south american food and we walked past this restaurant and decided to check it out. First sight: the customers were predominantly south american which is a good sign that the food is authentic! Second it was fairly packed with a line... More

Good food erratically served and you never know when they will be open. Easy to park in the slightly edgy Drive area. Leave the kids at home after 6pm.

I am a regular here. The owner knows me and my order. 4 pupusas in house and 10 or 15 more for take out. My bill is always around 60 bucks. I don't care. I have eaten pupusas all over Canada and the US and these are always the best. I have never had a bad dish or a complaint... More

I had the tortilla soup and pork pupusas. Previously, I've had pork with beans and just beans. I prefer the beans! It was the first time I've tried tortilla soup (I don't know if the avocado and lime are standard with it).... it was delicious! I also had fresh home-made mango juice.... that was also so delicious!! While you can... More

We heard rave reviews about Rinconcito's papusa's but we felt a little disappointed at how bland tasting they were. They appeared good but it just wasn't our thing. We had fish taco's that were great and taco soup which was quite excellent. The canteloupe juice was to die for. I would probably go back to try something spicier but certainly... More
